Daniel O'Donnell – Beyond The Sunset lyrics

Should you go first and I remain
To walk the road alone
I'll live in memory's garden, dear
When happy days we've known.

In spring I'll watch for roses red
And shades of lilac blue
In early fall when the brown leaves fall
Then I'll catch a glimpse of you.

Should you go first and I remain
To finish with the scroll
No lenghtening shadows shall creep in
To make this life seem droll.

We've known so much of happiness
Yes, we've had our cup of joy
And memory is one gift of God
That death cannot destroy.

Should you go first and I remain
There's one thing I'd have you do
Walk slowly down that long road
For soon I'll follow you.

I want you to know each step I take
So that you may walk the same
For someday down that lonely road
I'll hear you calling my name.

Beyond the sunset, oh glad reunion
With our dear loved ones who've gone before
In that fair homeland we'll know no parting
Beyond the sunset for evermore...
